Thank you, "Quirky," for putting this up for us to see. Just emailed her with a list of things I hope she can use. I'm so glad we might be able to help some of those kids in this way.

Just emailed her too - even from 'over here' this is something I can do to help.

Thanks so much for sharing this.... I have shared this with some other crafting groups that I am involved with. It is a great way to help in a small way to help them all get through this terrible time and to know that we care.

That's what I did, too, Janet. I'm trying to figure out some cards to make and send, too.

I just posted a link on Facebook so some of my non-crafty friends can see it (and some crafty friends too ... but they'll probably find it here).

BTT ... I rummaged in my craft space earlier today and gathered things to donate. I hope to get the supplies sorted, packaged and mailed tomorrow.

And if anyone needs ribbon for themselves now is a great time since there are a couple of places donating 10% or yard for yard to help out too!

I don't remember exactly what I put in the box but there are a few little bags with punch-outs of butterflies, dragonflies and geometric shapes/scallop circles, dark blue glitter glue (cheap-o Stickles), a package of white cardstock (from Michael's but I figure it would be easier the little ones to punch or cut), some pink cs (SU) that was already cut into large squares, various patterned paper/cs (Bo Bunny days/dotted Brights and ... DCWV?), buttons in several colors (from the $1-$1.50 bin at Michael's). I think I put in some adhesive runners from the Dollar Tree too. Oh, and I included some wood-mounted stamps (a dolphin, a baseball, a toy bunny and ...?)

The hardest part will be finding time to mail it before next week (I work in retail so the days/hours leading up to any holiday are crazy!)

I will post when it's been sent.

She mentioned that her site had switched servers and they're having some problems. Here are excerpts from the update posted yesterday:


Drawn Together is still going strong. There were a few behind the scenes problems with the new server for Damask Love, and you may have had some difficulty accessing the blog for details on this project....

For the last few days, Iíve been working hard unpacking shipments and making contacts in Newtown, Connecticut. Here are a few of the most recent developments!

To date, Drawn Together has raised $5,508.00 dollar donations! How amazing is that?!! These dollars will go toward the purchase of supplies as well as the assembly and delivery of our Drawn Together art kits.

I am extending the deadline for dollar donations to January 1, 2013, to make up for a few lost days when the blog was down. Spread the word and direct others to this post where they can make a direct donation to this cause.

I have purchased my ticket to travel to Newtown, Connecticut! I will be visiting the community on the weekend of January 4, 2013. Iíll be sharing photos and updates of this experience via the Damask Love social media channels, so that you can all see you donations in action.

Drawn Together will host Stories Worth Sharing at the C.H. Booth Library located in Sandy Hook. During this time, I will be joined by local art therapist, Mary Hamilton to read stories to the children and do an art activity! At the end of the event, each child will depart with a Drawn Together tote filled with fun supplies to keep their creativity going.

As I have mentioned in previous updates, I am planning to extend the Drawn Together efforts throughout 2013. We will be sending several shipments of supplies to the community of Newtown throughout the year, to remind them that they are continually in our thoughts and that this tragedy has not been forgotten.
